10 October, 2018, 08:29
Described by Scott as both "monstrous" and "massive", Michael could make landfall as a Category 3hurricane with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour, according to current projections. Should the storm tear into Big Bend, high winds will likely take down the area's heavy oak and pine trees and cause widespread power outages, which could be a factor in Georgia and the Carolinas as well.
The storm is threatening unsafe surges to low-lying areas ill-equipped to handle them.
Nadine, which is no threat to land, is notable as the 14th named storm this hurricane season, which was forecast to have less activity than during a normal year. The storm is expected to cause wide-spread power outages, high winds and heavy rain in Alabama.

"There are warnings for more than 300 miles of coastline".
The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said a "life-threatening storm surge" was expected along much of the coast of the Florida Panhandle. Cedar Key to Crystal River could see storm surges topping 6-8 feet. But the surging seawater could also create perilous problems far from the coast, raising rivers and bays to risky levels as it pushes as much as 10 to 15 miles inland.
With a number of counties ordering evacuations, Scott waived highway tolls in the northwest part of the state. By Friday (Oct. 12), the storm will make its way out over the northern Atlantic, NOAA is now predicting. You can see the Euro model below.
